What Press & Influencers should we send our baby to ?!

Hello Community!

As we are now almost at the shipping date it’s time for us to discuss what press and influencers (reviewers) have to get their hands on V! We will ship devices to press together with Hyper Early birds around 10th of May.

We think that now it’s the perfect time to start reaching out to the media that MATTERS to you!
We would love to hear your opinion on who should get to review V first.

Purpose of this thread is to brainstorm list of press we would like to send V to!

Rules for this thread:

1. In total you can name up to 6 people you would like us to ship V to

  • You can name MAX 3 press outlets
  • And MAX 3 influencers/reviewers

The reason for that is because we think that you all have your favorite review sites and we want to make sure that we can get V to as many outlet’s as we can!

2. Make sure to check in the thread description if press/influencer has been already listed

3. Please try not to go off topic so we can get good results of this discussion!

Time to get famous :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: :star:

AnandTech: More in-depth and objective than Tom’s Hardware ( :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: ); see if you can get either Ian Cutress, Ryan Smith, or Bret Howse to do the review
NotebookCheck: This must be a given

The New Screen Savers: Part of Leo Laporte’s TWiT Network, which also airs Windows Weekly
Liliputing

Influencers:

Lon.TV: Nearing 200,000 YouTube subscribers, Lon is incredibly objective, thorough and straightforward

Sorry for making it confusing. My bad!

We will try to reach all of the press/influnecers you guys propose here.
We are listing all of the press you mention here in the post itself so that people would not repeat press that was already mentioned and also to make it easier for us to use.

I have replied to my post to show sample format. Also after that I have added my own suggestions to the list in the main post. This will be done to all of the suggestions.

Sorry for confusion. It’s getting too late here :sleepy:

I am for sure too sleepy :smiley: The ones on top are the ones we will reach out to and hopefully get V to.
The ones people post will go to that list.

As we get them confirmed we will modify that list with updates!

From what I understood, Konsta (and anyone can too because it’s a wiki post) is editing the main post with suggestions of press and influencers that people make in the comment section :wink:

Edit: @Konstantinos beat me to it :slight_smile:

@Konstantinos what happened to this?

This thread by @riku should be helpful too :wink:

It’s wrong thread :slight_smile: Also we would like to hear opinion of new members without having them fixed on old list!
